Track Name: Lost At Best
I can't sleep tonight with all these things on my mind
I've traveled east and west; I guess you can say I'm lost at best
And these maps and atlases can't help me find home now

Stand up and find a place to call home

So I know where I am but don't know why I'm here
You'll never call this place home that's all I ever hear
And this is one thing that I've learned:
Home is not a place, home is just a feeling that you have never felt
Because you're always dealing with your own negativity
It's blinding you, you'll never fucking see

Stand up and find a place to call home

Stand up and find a place to call home
Stand up, find some solid ground of our own
Stand up and find a place to call home
Track Name: Climbing Trees
Those words, those words you said they still get to me
You said, "This didn't turn out as great as I thought it would be"
You might as well spit in my face and call me a disgrace
Cuz' I know you think it's all my fault

It's like I climbed the tallest tree
Just so you could cut it down on me

I'm not asking for second chances you see
Cuz' I've still held on to a piece of my dignity
I'll go home I'll go home, this doesn't feel like home to me
Cuz' walking these streets alone is the only way I'll feel free
The only way I'll feel free

So like The Vandals I'll tell them that my girlfriend is dead
But that wouldn't clear these troubles all stored up in my head
And if you feed on my pain, then I hope that your fed
Cuz' I still find it hard to sleep in my own bed

It's like I climbed the tallest tree
Just so you could cut it down on me

I'm not asking for second chances you see
Cuz' I've still held on to a piece of my dignity
I'll go home, I'll go home, this doesn't feel like home to me
Cuz' walking these streets alone is the only way I'll feel free

I'll go home, I'll go home, this doesn't feel like home to me
Because walking these streets alone is the only way I'll feel free
Track Name: Oceans and Crevices
Looks like I'll fake another smile to hide my denial
Can't stand being fake all I do is shake
I'm just trying to find my way out
While I keep my mouth shut trying so hard not to shout:

I'm drowning deeper in an ocean

I don't ask for much just a little respect
And a chance to succeed, so I know I'm no reject
They say, (they say) "Life just gets better than this"
But what if they're liars?
I guess it's just hit or miss...

Just don't let me miss

Don't tell me I'm fine when I know that I'm not
Don't tell me that I'm alone when you're all that I've got

My leg is stuck in a crevice
I'm drowning deeper in the bottom of the ocean
I'm begging you please, just let me be
anything but this, life is haunting me

It's haunting me
Track Name: Dude, We Have the Power Supreme
I've been sitting here to long and wasting all of my time
While I let you think you control my life
You're just a wall in my way and you can't make me stay
Because I know what's real and trust me, you're all fake

I can't believe I let this get out of hand
I'd rather spend my life alone than feel like this again
So I'll keep gritting my teeth down 'till there's nothing left of me
Or, I'll stand up for myself and be the kid that I need to be

I hope you're happy putting me in a cage
Teaching me to hide my emotions and all of this rage
So today I'll grow up and do things my own way
You better understand I'll never stay

I can't believe I let this get out of hand
I'd rather spend my life alone than feel like this again
So I'll keep gritting my teeth down 'till there's nothing left of me
Or, I'll stand up for myself and be the kid that I need to be

The world wants more and more and I have nothing left to give
The world wants more and more and I have nothing left to give
The world wants more and more and I have nothing left to give
The world wants more and more and I have nothing...

Left to give

I can't believe I let this get out of hand
I'd rather spend my life alone than feel like this again
So I'll keep gritting my teeth down 'till there's nothing left of me
Or, I'll stand up for myself and be the kid that I need to be
